It is one of the most beautiful …

Even though this post is an oldie I still think it is worth sharing again! This idea originally came to me while I was watching Anne Marie’s Twig Tree video in Home for the Holidays.

But with all the concrete home items trending, I was determined to figure out a way to imitate the concrete look without having to dive into figuring out real concrete. The result?

Over the years I have also heard other women talk about things their moms or grandmothers did …
